WXIN Slates Town Hall, Series of Reports on School Violence

This week, Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN will dedicate four days of extended coverage, including an hour-long televised town hall, to the topic of school violence.

“With the spate of violence in our schools, nationally and locally, we wanted to take the bold step in starting a real and constructive dialogue,”  WXIN VP-GM Larry Delia said in a statement. “This is an initiative that transcends our roles as journalists; we are empowering the local community to rise up, ask tough questions, and ultimately keep our children safe in their schools.”

Special reports on the school violence debate will air nightly on the 10 p.m. newscast and will feature a variety of topics, including gun control measures, mental illness and school security.

WXIN will air a televised town hall, moderated by anchors Angela Ganote and Ray Cortopassi, on Thursday, February 7. The panel discussion (pictured) will include school administrators and security experts, as well as a parent and a student.
